Since 2009-10 data have been extracted from the Incident Recording System (IRS). This is a live system and consequently it is possible that data extracted at a different time may not match the figures in this table. For instance the data published in the Performance Indicator tables are extracted at a different time and so may not match exactly those presented here.

Fire data for 2001-02 to 2008-09 are taken from the FDR1 and FDR3 paper forms.

Statistical quality
Since 2009-10 data have been extracted from the Incident Recording System (IRS).
